“A lot of the people on the road in RVs have seen the coast and want to discover the rest of Australia,” said Richard Barwick, the Campervan and Motorhome Club of Australia’s general manager. “They are drawn inland by the unique attractions and geography and because they want to meet the people of the bush. For country towns, this provides enormous opportunity for another income stream alongside agriculture.”
